Oct. 11 Social Media Summit

The date is fast approaching for our Social Media Communications Summit where we will examine how social media is being used in advertising, integrated marketing communications, and public relations.

This School of Media and Design (SOMAD) event will be available to audiences outside the college via a livestreamed link at http://www.somad.ca/socialmediasummit  between 2 and 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 11.

Advertising program students have created a poster that will be mailed as well as sent electronically in pdf format to area businesses and organizations that support our students with co-op and practicum experiences. Past graduates of the advertising, integrated marketing communications, and public relations programs will also be contacted.
